I am doing this right now with my advanced sculpture class. We have a
wetlands and large wooded area right behind our building- which is great.
The students are really enjoying it. They are either working alone or with 1
partner to create a sculpture of all natural materials( rocks, sticks,
leaves). I am following this up with a lesson on photography- as they will
photograph their piece and then display the photographs. Is the film "Rivers
and Tides" on video? Where did you see it?

Has anyone brought the techniques and philosophy of Andy Goldsworthy into
the classroom? (Or taken the kids outside :-) ) I just saw his film
"Rivers and Tides" and it was absolutely amazing.
I too am reviewing our art budget and this made me think of his way - using
found items in nature....and returning them to nature.
